Aaron Neville Changes Fashion For New Release

(Radio.com) Aaron Neville is a bit of a genre chameleon, recording albums in styles ranging from funk and R&B to country and gospel.

For his latest, My True Story, he re-envisions doo-wop, but the album isn't just a stylistic change musically. Instead of showing off his sizable biceps with his signature sleeveless t-shirts, Neville went all-in for the classic doo-wop vibe with suits, at least while promoting the new album.

"Before, I'd probably be in here with an Affliction t-shirt on," he told Radio.com. As someone who has always resisted wearing a tie, he looked to dapper comedian Steve Harvey for fashion inspiration.

"When I used to wear ties as a kid, my mom used to tie [them]," Neville said. "You've got to change your appearance for these things. So I went for some different type clothes. I dig Steve Harvey, he's the suit man, I be checking him out. And I guess you'll see me in a few more suits than t-shirts now."

On a more serious note, Neville says that his wife Sarah has been a big help in his fashion choices and in moving on after the tragic passing of his wife of nearly 50 years, Joel, in 2007. more on this story
